Saudi Ambassador to Britain is Nazi
The British Telegraph (www.telegraph.co.uk) reports that the Saudi Ambassador to England has said that 'The Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza is worse than anything Europe experienced under Nazi Germany'.
This is typical of anti-Israeli propaganda: turning the victims (Jews) into the perpetrators of violence (German Nazis). It is a theme I hear constantly in the San Francisco Bay Area, repeated by left-wingers and even assimilated Jews with no connection to Israel or Judaism.
The German Nazis killed over 6 million Jews during World War II. The average number of Jews killed PER DAY was 15,000-20,000. On bad days it would go as high as 30,000. The current number of Palestinians killed since October 2000 is a bit over 1400, mostly armed or violent men.
Next time you hear someone say Israel is acting like Nazi Germany, just call him/her a Nazi - your arguments will be just as strong as theirs.

Israelis 'are worse than Nazis'
The Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza is worse than anything Europe experienced under Nazi Germany, the Saudi ambassador to Britain said yesterday.
Ghazi Algosaibi, who was criticised earlier this year for writing a poem in praise of a woman suicide bomber, again defended the bombers, saying they were driven to extreme measures by their desperate circumstances under Israeli occupation.
Mr Algosaibi said Israel was using its military might against civilians who were defending themselves with the only weapons they had available, their bodies.
"This is a war of occupation, far more severe than anything the Germans did when they occupied Europe in World War Two," he said at the University of Westminster, central London.

Do the numbers matter? Genocide is genocide. It's still wrong. What concerns me is the apparent need of the Israeli people to exact an eye for an eye instead of making real compromise that might write them into history as true ambassadors of peace instead of being maligned (rightly or wrongly) as being unneccessarily cruel to the palestinian race. I am australian...non-jewish and non-islamic (or arab for that matter)...just wish you guys would sit back and think about a constuctive peace that doesnt involve more settlements on contested land...is it really worth it...? We are all old men sharing a beer in 40 years time...

what palestinian race, neither side you need to do some homework there isn't even a palestinian state, mate. When I was at school in the uk twenty something years ago, we where told that most of the arabs that you call palestinians migrated from around Egypt from the fall of the Ottoman Empire, and that even Arafat is from Egypt. So the next time you want to stick up for a bunch of mudering terrorists (suicide bombers) you will look a lot more intelligent when you use the correct term of Arab race... Just so you know I'm not Jewish either.
